Brahms’ Requiem is unique: the composer chose the text himself in order to create a Requiem which addresses the living rather than the departed. Brahms’ text preaches a message of comfort to those who are left to mourn. The NC Master Chorale performance features the Chorale, soloists, and a 50-piece symphony orchestra.
